The reason why I hate Larian is the huge amount of money they waste on marketing shills.

It's effective and gives a lot of exposure to various people. But I still despise it when my money is being wasted to sustain the living expenses of shills like OP.
>>
>>2368869
>failed at building strawman
Baldur's Gate is a saga of bhaalspawn, this story had it conclusion, there is nothing wrong in making a spinoff series like BG: Dark Alliance for example or BG: Divinity, but instead what is offered is a contynuation made 20 years after the conclusion of the games whithou main character, its like a God of War withot Kratos, if last GOW was mad 20 years ago, and new character in "official cannon" was a butch lesbian instead. Besides tadpole plot is retarded.

How to become an Owlcattle in 6 easy steps

Step 1: theory craft a new character to play as (copy 99% of someone else's build you saw online and convince yourself it's pretty much your idea)

Step 2: play for two and a half hours until you get bored and quit because the gameplay, story, characters, and actual role playing are all incredibly mediocre

Step 3: get two tabs open, one for /v/ and the other for /vrpg/

Step 4: for the next ten hours do nothing but patrol these boards looking for larian threads

Step 5: once a larian thread has been found derail it by holding the game to standards you wouldn't hold an owlcat game to, complaining about gameplay being too shallow, calling it woke while denying the existence of woke content in owlcat games

Step 6: see step 1

This has nothing to do with Owlcat Games or Larian Studios raging fanboyism, this has all to do with repeating occurance when fans of etablished and beloved franchises were fucked over, see Diablo, Warcraft, Star Wars, Doctor Who, He-Man, Star Trek, entire comic industry, and i would argue that Baldur's Gate as a game that initiated crpg renesance of sorts and saved the crpg as a whole is one of those beloved franchises and what is courently done to it is not a franchise ressurection but a corpse desacrating.

>probably going to be better than bg2
BG2 had several generations of roleplayers and DMs write stories/characters for it, resulting in several hundreds of mods that would expand the game with new content over the years.

Something like this will never happen again, due to multiple reasons.
The enthusiasm you get from lazy easy mode journalists and casual mass market is different.
The difficulty to mod games in later era have increased.
Shills hired by Larian will never be enthusiastic enough to start making mods either.
Many more reasons.

If there was a way to hang your kind by the robe so you didn't take such a huge upkeep in the cost of developing the games, the world would be improved by so much.

Unfortunately you latched on like a parasite, and the only recourse we have left is to not buying into a businessmodel that sustains you.

Hello,

Neither of you can spell, but the millennial is correct. I don't think recognizing and mocking the established fact that industries desecrating years of some generation's childhoods ostensibly just to piss them off so marketing will go viral as they hope for a few panderbucks from minority cults and dough headed, dough bodied, doey eyed fancucks qualifies as "drama queen victim complex".

Thank you for your time and consideration,

I am a millenial and i would love for BG3 to be a great game and it seems like it would be a masterpiece. The people sperging are zoomers who have not learned the simple truth that you can like more than one videogame at a time.

I have slightly different opinions on the quality of those games but you have the gist of it right. We should hope for bg3 to be as good as it can be and there's zero reason to build some weird misguided antagonism between bg3 and the original games or the fans of these games.
Personally I'm still quite reserved on bg3 because it smells so much like abusing brand recognition just wearing the skin of bg on a divinity game (aka BARRELS: The Game). I hope to be proven wrong and that larian knocks it out of the park, judging by their track record I doubt it but here's hoping.

I'm a millennial and I love it. I actually think most of the hate comes from larping zoomers, they're still in that stage where they think hating everything and bitterness is a personality. They weren't alive when the originals released, and never played them, but they can pretend for acceptance from the ents around them, which are more like than not to actually be embittered zoomers just like them. It's the story of /v/, and the story of this bullshit spin off board too. There's no place here for those who can still find joy in things.

Yes, I have heard of the cutting room floor. Still doesn't seem a stretch to expect them to release this with the bare minimum.

I literally can't talk enough about Baulders Gate 3 but to get to you question OP, I don't think whatever game this is can in anyway compare to the sheer brilliance that is Baulders gate 3. The game is so packed full of deep intellectual roleplaying that I'm surprised there's even a large enough following for BG3 (Baulders Gate 3) that threads about it to appear. Not that I'm complaining :).
Bg3 (Bauders Gate 3) has one of the deepest and well thought out roleplaying in any game I've ever played. It's cut through all the rooty tooty point and shooty "roleplaying" (that other games waste their time on) and gets to the real meat of any game.... the waifus. I truly can't express how how shocked I was (well I can, I lived through the "trump years") that there are people who don't like BG3 (Baulders Gate 3). It's probably just their preconceived notions on what a "game" has to be. These same people probably also have antiquated ideas about women, race, and religion as well. So in short most detractors of this game are incels.
